Center field seating
These are the outside tracks which go under the promenade
The lot within the lot.

This is the LRT path looking from the ballpark site (behind me) toward downtown. The line currently ends about two blocks up this street. This bridge over I-394 is also being partially rebuilt as part of the ballpark project.
Sometime in the late 1980s: B ramp is under construction. Not yet built: Target Center, I-394 and the A ramp.
A mass of rebar and complicated cable runs ready for a pour.

The pouring is taking place at the very bottom of this photo.
This is the revised version of the center field pavilion (without the restaurant). It looks like there are no seats, just some ledges for people to sit on. It reminds me of the seating on the "bridge" which sticks out of the new Guthrie Theater. Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.

This is a slightly blurry view of the pavilion in center. It has a quirky shape, but one which is completely consistent with the overall ballpark design. Nice work there. You can also get a glimpse of the greenery which will rise above the fences.
Solution for a hot night, just inside Gate 34 (that's a cool mist, by the way, not hot steam, which would be kind of cruel)
These stairs will meet the skyway.
Some of Minneapolis' finest checking out the construction through a spot where a knothole will be one day.
He'll always be a fan favorite, but did you know that he's making $18.5 million this year? The Twins' entire outfield today, combined, makes $7.45 million.
Night (about the 7th inning)
Yes, son, Memorial Stadium used to be right there, just beyond those gates.
Here is a close-up of those funny little islands of seats (HRP View).
This is the staircase (ramp?) leading up to the trapezoid. Nice flagpole too. You'll be able to find me and Ben McEvers at the base of that flagpole on opening day in 2010!
The closed concession stand.
Impractical, expensive, undeniably cool (Angel Stadium, source LP)
Instrument of evil.
This will be a bar/restaurant.

Just lighted panels... *sigh*
